My 9 yr old with Crohn's Diagnosis
betterhealth19 posted:
It's been a rough two years. Around April my 9 yr old was diagnosed with Chrone's. I would not agree to medication at that time because I didn't want to give her steroids or any heavy arsenal of drugs without researching first. In May, a friend brought over sachets to put in our drinking water that contained 70 minerals. It makes the water alkaline and provides all those minerals to your body. Never thinking it would help with this diagnosis but more so thinking it would help her with acid reflux--5 months later, after drinking the water with the sachets, the Chrone's test is normal -- all anatomy normal! Acid Reflux gone, chronic constipation gone! I am one happy Mama! I've heard a quote: "Every disease, every illness can be traced back to a Mineral deficiency," Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize Winner. I think there's something to that. I have seen videos on how alkaline water and an alkaline diet is curing cancer too. I can't say if it would work for everybody but you never know. Here is the website to read about them: The sachets are called: "X2O". Hope this helps!
